Considered one of Fiji's best Beaches, Natadola features pure white sand, many much-needed shade trees and horses for hire - both gentle rides for children and adult-level treks as well.
Generally it is not easy to find a beach with clear sand and free of some dangerous sea creatures in Fiji. Natadola beach is an excellent option. You can access it from intercontinental for a 40 FJD per person food voucher. Only down side is the horses that the local villagers riding on the beach, which is polluting the area.

Being met by a friendly green iguana was a good introduction to this small but very interesting nature park. It was a very well presented park with activities that suited both small children, and adults. Kids were encouraged to feed turtles and the walk-through bird cages were well done. I'm not a great fan of keeping birds in cages but most of them looked pretty happy and well looked after. If you have small children there is a lovely swimming pool with some good amenities, and for the young at heart and teenagers, there is a great zip line that goes through the trees. Note that the parking is difficult - don't cross the causeway, park outside the park on the roadside. It was worth a visit.

Sculptured through the workings of wind, water and vegetation, the Sigatoka Sand Dunes stand out as one of Fiji's most unique wonders. In 1989, 390 acres of the Sigatoka Sand Dunes was established as Fiji's first National Park- The Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park. A key contributor to its protection is the archaeological treasures buried beneath the dune sands. These artefacts have contributed to the history of man's first arrival in Fiji. Today, evidence of this past continue to be unearthed by the wind. The Park is home to a unique Dune forest which is now home to a myriad of wildlife. Some notable inhabitants of this forest include the Fijian Swallow tail Butterfly, the fruit bats, the Goshawks, the giant stick insects and cryptic Pacific Boa. The National Park is a Fijian heritage, rich in both natural and cultural attributes.
Amazing views ! Huge sand dunes! Beautiful!
When we arrived gate was closed due to Christmas holiday. So we asked locals and found a way to climb the dunes. It was a 70 degree climb but totally worth it.
Please check the timing before you go. There is a small entry fee. If gate is closed you can still climb the dunes by asking an alternate route.
Don’t miss it.

They’ll teach you how to husk a coconut and serve tropical fruits while you just relax and enjoy the therapeutic waters and tranquility of this magnificent natural setting.
We did this tour through the Warwick Hotel. We were picked up on time and taken to Biausevu Village where we were welcomed into the Chiefs house with a Kava ceremony. From there we were taken through the village to the hall where you had the option to purchase handcrafts, at no time did we feel pressured to buy and we found some handcrafts better and cheaper than the tourist stores, the local villagers were very welcoming and friendly through out the visit. The walk to the waterfall takes you along a basic concrete path and several rivers that were ankle to knee deep. Our guide was able to point out different plants along the way to the falls which took about 20min. The falls were amazing and worth the walk the water is refreshing and on the cooler side. They have basic toilets and changing rooms available at the falls to use. On the return to the Chiefs house we were provided with a lite lunch before departing.

Notable for its massive size and unusual natural characteristics, this cave was once a fortress for a cannibal tribe and still contains a cannibal oven and other reminders of this gruesome history.
Beautiful, historical place. The name of the cave says it all… Naihehe means ‘a place to get lost’. Naihehe Cave was home to the 'Sautabu' people during Fiji's tribal warfare days. Great for a day trip!

Tour this restored ancient fort where you'll learn about pre-colonial Fiji life and enjoy great views from two lookout points.
overgrown, paths a bit worn out and not always open. But the climb to the top along the old paths is great and some amazing views there. No signage, tracks a bit worn out, view point is rickety verging on dangerous, nothing really explaining what this site is and it is a shame. Could be so much better if the Govt invested in this tourist location.
But is worth visiting anyway

The Waterfall tour was a great experience. We took our own transport there and were advised to take a Kava root offering for the Chief (about a F$60 value) and in hindsight really not necessary but we wanted to do it the traditional way. After a brief audience with the Chief, we were told we still had to pay F$30 each to go to the waterfall and were assigned a guide. The guide was helpful and carried my bag for me. There are 9 streams to cross and I highly recommend water shoes for this otherwise you will be like my husband and drying out your sneakers. We enjoyed the relatively easy hike up and the beautiful rainforest. Swimming in the waterfall was fun but our guide did hurry us along. On the way back down my tween and teen were walking ahead and we were approached and offered a coconut by a guy who said “I gave your kids a coconut” – they are $5 each. The kids had shared one and I took one and I must say it was a delicious coconut and worth it (I had one in Nadi at an Indian Restaurant a few days later which was stale and nasty). The guide also told us that although we had paid the Chief our fee, he saw nothing of that and there was a big hint for a tip, which we going to give him anyway. He told us the $30 entrance fee goes towards maintaining the trail. The villagers have actually built a path all the way up to the waterfall which was pretty amazing, as without it, you would be walking in ankle deep mud – there was also a bathroom and changing room at the waterfall and a bench to rest at along the way. I thought it was a great experience being high up in the Fijian rainforest and would highly recommend it. We took a quick look at the trinkets on offer but didn’t see anything different to other places, so politely declined. Note the Waterfall is closed on Sundays.

Historic Fijian Village
We had read several good things about the Baravi market, in this little village, several miles past Sigatoka. The village was quaint, but the shopping left a lot to be desired.
